All living things are surrounded by an aura, which is an oval-shaped, colored band of sound, light and vibration. The human aura is also sometimes referred to as a psychic energy field. Each of the aura colors represent a person’s mood or physical health and also reflect the condition of their chakras. The major colors associated with the aura are red, orange, yellow, green, blue-indigo and violet. However, there are many variations on those colors. Some are more intense or less intense, or are deeper or lighter in color. There are even metallic colors within the aura spectrum, such as silver and gold. The aura can contain black, white and gray, as well.
The aura also holds a multitude of information about one’s past, present and future. An aura is noticeable in different way to those who are sensitive to them. For example, many psychics, psychic mediums, healers and empaths who are sensitive to the vibrations of each layer can either visually see or physically sense the colors. Kirlian or other special cameras can also be used to photograph and view the aura.
